skype fail!

Margaret and I tried to Skype tonight but it failed miserably because her internet connection was bad.  Im extremely angry at this because I didn't get to capture any solid facial expressions.  I guess you'll have to settle with this older gallery of photos.  Enjoy!!

what is love?

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Kids say the darndest things. Look at what some of them said when asked "What is love?"

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French Fries without making them give you any of theirs." --Chrissy, age 6

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday." --Noelle, age 7

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day." --Mary Ann, age 4

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth." --Billy, age 4

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." --Terri, age 4

Lifedates (aka Life Updates)

We are NOT avoiding our blog. I promise. We are actually waiting on some news (that is taking a lot longer than expected) hence the blogging hiatus (except for Matt's cute post dedicated to my photography). I can't tell you what we're waiting for...because we don't want to jinx it (knock on wood). But I will give you a few other lifedates (or life-updates...cute right?)

Work: I am finishing up my FOURTH week of work at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Incredible. I actually am really enjoying working there. Everyone is really great and it's just a different environment for me. So far so good. Plus I got MY FIRST FULL-TIME PAYCHECK. yowsers. too bad I have already spent half of it paying off my credit card for all the new work clothes I bought.  Part of doing well at work is looking good at work, right? Please just agree with me so I feel better.

School: Matt is all done with his class finals and is finishing up with studio. He should be done next tuesday, so send him positive vibes to get him through this! If you're reading this (which I know you will) I love you and you will be awesome. YOU ARE ALMOST DONE with third year. Crazy.

Amber McCormick: graduated from UC Irvine. Girl got her degreeee. Congrats :) I love youuu!

Kery (Bro-sef): finished up his first year of college. EVEN CRAZIER. Good job brothhaaa. Proud of you.

Graduation: I graduated ONE YEAR AGO. Isn't that insane? I'm turning 23 in a little under a month. Another scary thought. What is going on? Where is all the time going? I feel like one of those blubbering moms thinking...omg where did all the time go? How did my baby grow up so fast, except that I am the baby? I don't know. I am blubbering now. But maybe you understand what I'm trying to say?

Anyways, tomorrow i'm kicking it poolside and working on my tan. I love summer.
